Nedousa Carnival

If you would like to experience the authentic, traditional celebration of the Carnival, visit Nedousa, one of Kalamata's mountain villages that is located 30 km from the center of Messinian capital.

On Shrove Monday every year, an authentic, rural performance takes place in the village's central square. Also known as the performance of Evetirias, it is a kind of "people's theater" consisting of a series of "actions" that are performed by disguised villagers to ensure a good year and fertility.

This performance has certain characteristics that are unique to other parts of Greece, thus hundreds of people pour in to see this tradition from all over Greece.
